I was so sorry to hear of Steve's passing. I grew up with the Smoot family and thought every one of them was an exceptional person. Steve was so kind to me and made me feel welcome and important. What a wonderful man. My condolences to you all.

Stephen Smoot is a great man with an amazing legacy. I knew him all my life and never heard a unkind word leave his mouth. He's kind as the day is long. He is missed but I am sure he is happy to go home.
